Lennon, Lucy and Lupus

There are all types of ways to incorporate entertainment into online fundraising, however large or small the charity or cause.  I read on Billboard.com that chronic disease Lupus is being giving some fundraising support by Julian Lennon who is donating a portion of the proceeds from his new song, “LUCY,” to fund research.  Lucy Vodden, a childhood friend of Lennon’s who recently passed away at the age of 46 after a long battle with lupus inspired the song. The same Vodden was also the subject of a drawing that Julian created which inspired his father to write the memorable Beatles hit song “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”

I have some personal involvement with the subject of Lupus as my mother founded the first lupus support group Lupus UK. after being diagnosed with the illness in the 70s. Well done mum and well done Jullian Lennon for raising the profile of the much misunderstood condition.
